Bio and Links
Bio Photo My ancestors settled in northeastern Indiana in the 1830s and I am still here. I especially like old obituaries and newspaper clippings, and of course, cemeteries.

I generally follow the transfer guidelines as outlined by Findagrave. I try to get updates done quickly.

Exceptions: I often take photos when we go on vacation, so if I have a memorial that is not in NE Indiana, I am normally more than happy to transfer it as I have no plans to do research in those areas.

Thanks to all who have sent additional information for the memorials. Time does not allow me to thank each of your personally, but please know that the additional information is greatly appreciated.

In order to post such a recent obit., I would need the date it was published and what paper it was posted in. Please know that I will also delete the names of the living but will refer to survivors as son, daughter, etc.

I just feel that I need to follow the Find A Grave guidelines on this, especially since Ancestry bought them out. Some people are so upset by that, that they are actually deleting any and all memorials they have posted. Not sure I understand...
